The second kanji character “後 (ご-go, のち-nochi, あと-ato, おく (れる)-oku(reru) or うし(ろ)-ushi(ro))” means back side or late(r).

The third kanji letter “左 (さ-sa or ひだり-hidari)” means left side.

Additionally these four kanji letters, “上下 (じょうげ-jouge)” means upper and down sides.

“上 (しょう-shou, じょう-jou, うえ-ue or かみ-kami etc)” means upper side or “on”. So we say “机の上に本がある (-tsukue no ue ni hon ga aru)” for “There is a book on the desk.”

And “下 (げ-ge, か-ka, した-shita or しも-shimo etc)” means down side.
